Fed up with nuisance calls from companies driving you nuts with offers of PPI refunds, no-win, no-fee services or money-back? Well now there's a way to opt out for good and it's a complete doddle.

It was bad enough when sales companies and scammers started calling our home phones to hassle us with their products and services but the now that they're getting hold of our mobile numbers it's driving us bonkers!

Well from today we no longer have to put up with it.

A cheeky tip is to forward ANY nuisance text messages to the number 7726. This number actually spells out SPAM on a traditional phone keypad and works by reporting the sender of the text to your network.

Some service providers also have their own unique blocking service - give them a call to check - or blockers can often be downloaded.

Also, a new text service from Ofcom and the TPS (Telephone Preference Service), is targeting cold callers means you don't have to have your life interrupted by unscrupulous companies intruding by calling your mobile.

The "text-to-register" service allows you to add your mobile number to the Telephone Preference Service (TPS) a call blocking database.

Texting this number could save you the agony of being plagued by companies offering to sell you stuff by cold calling your mobile phone.
